Grade Six Leaving

A special thank you to classroom teachers, Ms. Suter and support staff for celebrating our students today.  Dr. Suess’, “Oh, The places you’ll go” was the giant message delivered to kids at the Grade Six Leaving ceremony.   Music chosen celebrated the idea of believing in who we are and exiting opportunities that await in junior high.

‘You’re off to Great Places!

Today is your day!

Your mountain is waiting

So…get on your way!”

Kindergarten Concert

Can you sing away the rain and make the sun shine? Let’s begin. Ready. It is harder than you think but the kindergartens did it! Believe it. The concert was called Rainbows and Raindrops, Pluie et Parapluie. Life flourishes and the cycle of life begins once again with many tiny plants and animals around us. Special thanks to the Kindergarten teachers and to Ms. Hinchy (Music teacher) for dreaming the event in colour.

A special thank you is extended to the Grade 6 teachers: Mr. Turpin; Ms. Phelan; Mme. Penney; Mme. Gambin and Mme. Bellew.  We wish to thank Ms. Suter and Mr. O’Leary for their leadership.
